Maximilian Adventure Army Lists for Sharp Practice

The past few days have been a real trip down memory lane for me.  Having penned a series of articles on the subject of Maximilian in Mexico for Wargames Illustrated back in the 1990’s (I was a mere strip of a lad at the time…almost), I decided to dip my toe back into the period in order to produce Army Lists for Sharp Practice.  Here’s what I came up with:  Maximilian Adventure

    I think this is an interesting background.
    A pitiy, that George MacDonald Fraser never wrote about Sir Harry Flashman’s advaenture in this affair.
    He simply meintions it, so we will never learn how he got out of the Bataille de Camerone –
    The movie Vera Cruz give an impression – how historically wrong it may be, never mind.
    Western Gunfight terrain, European troops, irregular forces – sound like a good recipe for me.

    The army lists are an excellent resource, no doubt, and I look forward to seeing more, but the Force Morale track would seem to be more of a priority as it is required in every game. I think in the rule book it says it can be downloaded from the Yahoo group, but I find that totally unusable. I don’t know what the source of the glitch is, but on the rare occasions I can get beyond the latest three posts, I can see no way of finding anything specific. Surely it would make sense for it to be available here in any case? A response would be appreciated. I’ve tried using the contact form in the past for another query, but without success.

    I left a comment here yesterday regarding difficulty in finding the Force Morale Tracker. It is no longer here, though I have previously found that comments I have posted are sometimes here, sometimes not, and sometimes ‘awaiting moderation’ (indefinitely) with no apparent reason for this. In the event that it is an unintentional glitch, as opposed to a moderately subtle message, someone with the requisite skill set may want to look into it. In the meantime, I will set about designing my own Force Morale Track, which I hope will neither infringe copyright or offend sensibilities.

Compact Discs.  A modern technological miracle and a huge advance into the “paper fee” age.  No longer is my office burried under piles of mulched up trees, as many of the articles and images that I get sent are on CD.  So, my desk is normally awash with them instead. In an effort to make

Over-Exposed – The Game

Let’s be honest about the questions we’re being answered here. Does Chain of Command, like another set of popular WWII wargames rules, Crossfire, require large amounts of terrain. My first statement must be that I have never played Crossfire so it is impossible for me to make that very specific comparison. I have heard good

Casual readers of Lard Island News may be unaware that prior to becoming an on-line publication we had been serving the inhabitants of the island for in excess of 250 years.  The following snippet from our archives from 200 years ago will serve to illustrate this pont.  In those days the concept of a war
